Homemade Granola

June 29, 2008

When getting ready to go away for more than a couple days I usually make a batch of granola to take with me. It is a staple for camping and is great for long car rides when you need something nutritious and quick. 

The following is the recipe I use. I often double or quadruple it so I have lots. It is quite versatile and can be changed to anyone’s tastes. It can be enjoyed as is or with milk for breakfast. It’s also delicious on yogurt. Enjoy!

Granola

2 cups old-fashioned oats

1 cup raw nuts (walnuts, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, etc)

½ cup raisins, craisins or goji berries

½ cup honey

1T canola oil

½ tsp. cinnamon

Dash of nutmeg (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil 13″ x 9″ baking pan. Spread oatmeal, nuts and raisins in pan. In a small saucepan bring to a boil the honey, oil, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over oatmeal combination and stir until evenly distributed. Bake for 30 minutes; stirring every 10 minutes. Pour granola onto wax paper to cool and store in glass jar or plastic bag.
